  • Veterans deserve gratitude

    Nov. 11 is the day set aside to give much-deserved recognition to those who gave their lives in service for our country.
    Veterans Day was established for that very purpose in 1918. That date coincides with the ending of World War I, also known as the Armistice, which was signed on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.
    Celebrations across the nation include laying of wreaths at memorials throughout Washington, D.C., and festivities and parades in towns across America. Veterans of all wars will also be recognized for their service.

  • Crawford shows true kindness, generosity

    Betty Broome’s article about Shawn Crawford being honored by Clemson University was very interesting. Crawford deserved his recognition as a great athlete and a kind, caring, down-to-earth individual.
    Especially since he is a resident from Lancaster County’s Van Wyck community. Very few residents from Lancaster County have ever had this honor bestowed upon them.
